Duplicate record problems with popup value from another table.

Post

Hi:

I have a database in which Field  A is a popup menu, based on a value list.  Field "B" is a lookup from another table, based on a match from Field "A".   Field B is also a popup list, based on a value list which is generated from the "use values from field" check box, which links to another table, and populates the field "B" pupup menu. It may have one, or several items depending on the match.  My problem is, when I use duplicate record to save on entry time, the value in field "B", always reverts to the first item in the list, instead of keeping the selected value in the field.  I realized that if I set the field with "auto-enter last visited", it does do just that, including when using the duplicate record command.  But sometimes I don't want those fields with the previous value, I would rather enter them.  Shouldn't duplicate record do just what it says, and keep the values in field B, even if they are values generated from a match in another table?  What am I missing?

thanks in advance.
